Another day in America brought another mass shooting. This time it was in the town of Taft, Oklahoma, where at least one is dead and seven others are injured.

I have no words.

8. 72 percent African American

I wonder if this is another white supremacy shooter.

21. Thanks. I know it's sad I thought it was the other possibility.

But the Repugs did that to themselves quite frankly.

18. In Muskogee County, only population of 250 in 2010. Good grief.

5. One never knows in the US when you are liable to be shot dead just because you exist!

It's a screwed up place, many career political people in it for power and profit. And corporate owned, USA, Inc.
Come visit the US and go home in a body bag. The land where people come last. Welcome to Idiocracy!

6. Well of course it does!

Your event is nothing these days if you don't have an active shooter and at least 10 people shot!

I'm starting to think event planners are building these in to any event they're working on, just for the recognition.

7. African American communities are particularly plagued with gun violence.

After centuries of disempowerment, blacks are increasingly reaching for guns as a means of free-will expression.

17. Memorial Day is to remember those who paid the ultimate price for freedom

Which these days includes those who died in mass shootings.

20. I heard one anchor (CNN's Jim Acosta?) asking if we'd need to start

observing a Memorial-Day-style day for mass shooting victims.

Hey, what’s stopping it? By a week from today, there’s bound to be more.
